My name is Jordan and I have recently returned home after living in China for the past 13 months where I acted and performed at Shanghai Disneyland Resort. Working in Shanghai Disneyland opened my eyes to a world full of magic, smiles and happiness. So much so, I want to continue to share that magic and joy with everyone here at home through Glass Slipper Entertainment. I know it can be difficult to travel to far away places to meet fairytale princesses, so I thought I could bring them to you.
Having the incredible opportunity to live in China, and to work for Disney was both life changing and eye opening for me. Not only was I immersed in a brand new culture full of tradition and history (and tons of people), I got to work for a company I only dreamed of working for.
I have been performing for nearly 20 years. When I started my training way-back-when, never in my wildest dreams could I have seen myself performing for Disney. I remember for my 12th birthday, my parents (and grandparents) took me and my family to Disneyland for the first time. As cheesy as it may sound, I honestly get emotional just writing about it. I am sure most people out there remember their first trip to Disneyland (or any of the Disney parks), because it really does make memories that last a lifetime. For me, it was hands down the most magical place on earth. That trip holds some of my most cherished memories. I remember seeing some of the princesses from a distance, and then actually getting to meet a couple of them in person, and being mesmerized and in complete awe. It was safe to say I was star struck. Was it real? Was I really getting to meet a real live princess?! It was a dream come true.
Little did I know, more than a decade later another dream would come true… working for Shanghai Disneyland Resort. This time, not only did I get to make more of my own memories that will last forever, I was able to take part in the magical memory-making of so many little ones that came to visit the park in Shanghai. This is something so special, it is difficult for me to put into words. So I will leave it up to your imagination.
I say, you can never have too much happiness, too much laughter, too many stories or too deep of a smile line.
Stay tuned for more stories about my time in China, and at Shanghai Disneyland Resort.
P.S. There’s only one you in this entire universe… how cool is that!
